(EDITOR’S NOTE: The following release was provided by Strata-G which recently licensed technology from the Y-12 National Security Complex and Oak Ridge National Laboratory.)

Knoxville, TN – Strata-G, LLC, a Veteran-owned Small Business that is locally owned and staffed, is celebrating its 10-year anniversary with events throughout the coming year.  Strata-G, which opened its doors in 2002, employs scientists and engineers whose skills and talents have garnered numerous awards from customers and the local community.

“We want to mark this anniversary by thanking our employees, customers, business partners, and the community for helping us reach this milestone,” said Dan Hurst, President of Strata-G.  “Our success as a company is because of them, and we are grateful for the opportunity to thank them.”

Strata-G’s success is based on the company’s core values of integrity, service, and quality.  “By hiring extraordinary people, creating meaningful relationships with our customers, and giving back to the community, we’ve been able to grow deep roots that sustain us.” said Hurst.  Strata-G offers services in Business and Information Management, Engineering, Scientific Services, and Waste Management and Transportation.  Most recently, Strata-G created a company, Teknolo-G, to focus on deploying technology from Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Y-12.  Teknolo-G has purchased licenses to two technologies from Y-12 and one from ORNL, both of which pertain to stewardship.

Strata-G’s web site,, describes the company’s active commitment to stewardship and community involvement.  Strata-G recently was nominated for a Pinnacle Award based on business excellence and community service, a testament to the company’s “four pillars” of outreach:  food, shelter, education, and the environment.  To commemorate the 10-year milestone, the company has partnered with Foothills Land Conservancy to further the goals of Tennessee land stewardship.  “We are particularly excited to work with Foothills to protect our natural resources and help build an environment in which our children will want to live,” said Hurst.  The Strata-G team will work with Foothills Land Conservancy staff to identify projects in which company employees can engage throughout the year.

“We look forward to the next ten years,” Hurst concluded.  “From our office, we look over a valley backed by the Cumberland Mountains.  We envision that valley as part of a growing regional economy, much like the Silicon Valley, based on leading edge technology and timeless commitment to people.  We plan to be a part of that vision.”
